Portland corn maze has Timbers twist

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland corn field maze is paying homage to the city's professional soccer team.

Workers at the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island have carved the Portland Timbers logo into their corn field, creating a five-acre maze that commemorates the team's inaugural MLS season.

Craig Easterly, founder of The Portland MAiZE, said the Timbers corn maze has two phases, an easier section that allows visitors to acclimate to the maze's more difficult finish.

Both sections feature 16-foot high bridges offering visitors a panoramic view of the maze and a glimpse at a possible escape.

Those who chose to enter the roughly mile-long maze have the option of answering several trivia questions to help them navigate the twists and turns. Maze organizers say many of the questions relate to the Timbers.

The maze is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. starting Sept. 3. Organizers plan to expand the maze in October, adding on a "haunted" section that will stay open later on weekends.

Entry into the maze will cost $5 for kids 6 to 12 and seniors over 60 years old, $7 for those are 13 and older, and free for children under 5.

The Pumpkin Patch is located at 16511 NW Gillihan Rd. on Sauvie Island.
